If you’ve been into trainers for any amount of time, chances are you’ve come across the hallowed Air Max 1 before. Nike debuted this bad boy all the way back in 1987, and if you couldn’t guess by its name, this was the first shoe to feature the innovative Air sole unit. Apparently, Tinker Hatfield's designs for the Air sole unit were inspired by exposed structural elements, most obviously the elevators, of the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
These 'Curry' ones here are a one-to-one reissue of a Air Max classic, first served up in 2003: what's now known as the "golden era" of the Air Max 1. While they don't taste of chicken balti or lamb karahi, or even tikka masala, they do look very sleek indeed.
